Introducing our range of agogos

Ideal for education, Chamberlain offers sturdy agogos for the classroom and samba group performance. With brands such as Halilit, LP Percussion and Percussion Plus our range consists of high quality instruments at great prices.

Our agogos are a great way to introduce percussion to younger children and also help students understand more about percussive instruments that can be found around the world.

About the agogo

Also known as a gangan, agogos are a type of hand bell, similar to a cow bell. It has 2 or more bells attached to a handle and is played with a wooden stick to create a bright and uniform sound. The larger the bell the lower the pitch, and visa versa, that are used to create a huge variety of syncopated rhythms.

The bells can be made of metal, coconuts, gourds, wood or large seeds. One example of a less common material we have is our honestly made natural agogo which has been crafted in Indonesia using traditional methods from sustainable wood and two tone fruit husks as the bells.

Very much similar to the PP3600, PP600 and the LP577 Agogo bells, the most common arrangement of agogo is two bells attached by a U-shaped piece of metal. Either bell may be hit using a wooden stick to make a cowbell like sound.

Great for education

From early years to primary school, these agogos are a great way to introduce percussion from around the world into the classroom. Music groups and ensembles can also be created within the school or educational institution to maximise the creativity and musical ability of their students.

Agogos are an essential Samba instrument which is used to play the complex syncopations and cross rhythms. They are a simple but very effective instrument and would make a great addition to any collection of percussive instruments in a school environment.
